What a great report Abnshrek! How exactly did you overwinter your VC, and was it established in the pot before bringing it indoors?

It probably had 3 weeks in a 25 gal pot before I transported them to La to put in my Little Banana grow room.. where I had a heater go out, but it only got in the low 50's so it was fine.. As you can tell from previous pages in the thread the mother did fruit from a similar height when I planted it last spring.. :^)

I just receive mine today from Thailand

Only 7 days for shipping !

I am waiting since 2 month for a jubaea chilensis that i have bought in a french nursery....

The veinte cohol has a big piece of corm greatly cicatrizied and full of roots.

The roots are Brown only on their end.

What should i do ? Cut them ? Or they have a chance to recover?

Well this is what I started out w/ this year (rear plant not the saba up front)..



And this is what I have now.. A pair of sisters one @ 5' and the other over 4'(backside of pic), and more pups. Pup on front left is over 3'(p-stem) So its just a matter of time before this one blows its top.. :^)

Beautiful plant, Migael.

I've started to decrease my holdings of this cultivar, the bunches/fruit are just too big, making hand removal difficult and time consuming.

Going to thin this one out very soon.. Tallest is 6'6" of stem so only 5 more inches to get to PR's VC height @ bloom, but I don't think it will get there.. :^)

That mat is off the hook! Considering you got a foot of growth in the last month, September should be an interesting month.
